About the event

RISTOL, Tenn.-Va. (Feb. 22, 2024) - The Birthplace of Country Music proudly presents WBCM Radio Bristol's Farm and Fun Time live variety show, featuring bluegrass sensation East Nash Grass and Allison de Groot & Tatiana Hargreaves, an exciting traditional banjo-fiddle duo, at the  Birthplace of Country Music Museum in Historic Downtown Bristol, Tenn.-Va. on March 14 at 7 p.m. ET.  "East Nash Grass has earned high distinction in Nashville as a stellar bluegrass band, with each of its members in-demand as supporting musicians for other acts," said Farm and Fun Time host and Radio Bristol Program Director Kris Truelsen, "Allison de Groot and Tatiana Hargreaves are award-winning master musicians in their own right, so this pairing of talent at Farm and Fun Time promises to be very special."  As an ensemble, East Nash Grass has earned the solid reputation as a bona fide bluegrass phenomenon while gigging weekly at Dee's Country Cocktail Lounge for the past six years. Their sophomore album "Last Chance to Win" charted at No. 4 on Billboard's Bluegrass Chart, and the band was nominated for IBMA's New Artist of the Year award in 2023. The chemistry between the musicians as individuals on stage is a hoot to witness, melding humor and high-energy performances into one of the most entertaining bluegrass acts to come along in recent years.  Master musicians Allison de Groot and Tatiana Hargreaves have risen to the top of a whole new generation of musicians. Allison is a renowned clawhammer banjoist who earned her chops performing with Bruce Molsky. Hargreaves, who teaches bluegrass fiddle at UNC-Chapel Hill, has performed with Dave Rawlings and Laurie Lewis. The duo's debut, self-titled album earned them the Independent Music Awards Best Bluegrass Album, and they have performed at respected venues and festivals such as Newport Folk Festival, Savannah Music Festival, and Winnipeg Folk Festival.  Truelsen and his Farm and Fun Time house band round out the evening with musical segues and vintage jingles, making it a night of fun and music the whole family will enjoy. Tickets for this unforgettable night of music are priced at $40 and may be purchased online through the Events page at Farm and Fun Time is made possible by Eastman Credit Union, Toyota of Bristol, Virginia Tourism Corporation, and the City of Bristol, Tenn.
